Dundee. During the past week rnmour was rife in town that Asiatic cholera had made its appearance in Dundee; but we are glad to say that as yet it is without founda- tion. There have been numerous classes of supposed cholera reported to the different medical gentlemen, but on investigation they have turned out to be rather severe cases of dysentery. That these have, however, generated into British cholera of a very malignant type is beyond all doubt. One man, named William Edward, a cabman residing in Maithouae-close, com- plained of an illness with which he was seized about five o'clock on Friday night; but it was 15 hours afterwards before it was thought necessary to pro- cure medical aid, and he died. Deceased was about 45 years of age. Another man, about the same age, a labourer, residing in Barrack-street, died between eight and nine o'clock the same morning. He was seen by Drs. Duncan and Cristie, who considered British cholera the cause of death. A labourer residing at Criohton-olose, Overgate, was seized about one o'clock on Sunday morning, and died at two in the afternoon. Dr. Pirie saw the man, and considered he was suffering from British cholera. We understand this man's wife and daughter are labouring under the same complaint. A very weakly- looking man was found lying in Dock-street on Saturday night by the police, and as they thought him under the influence of liquor, and unable to take care of himself, they took him to the police. office. After he was conveyed there, the man was found to have been attacked by dysentery. He was removed with all possible speed to the infirmary, where he died on Sun- day morning about half-past 10 o'clock. A man living in the Model Lodging-house, Overgate, was also at- tacked with bowel complaint, and died there on Sun- day morning; another man, who lived in Barrack- street, died on Saturday; a child, residing in Hill- town, died on Friday; and a woman, who lived in Rose-street, died on Thursday, all the victims of British cholera.- Dundee Advertiser. The cholera is assuming a serious aspect in Wins- ford. There were outbreaks in fresh quarters of the town on Friday morning. Sixteen fatal cases have occurred since Saturday last, and between thirty and forty cases are now under treatment. Within the last few days two fatal cases of English cholera have occurred in Manchester. The first was that of a man named John Wrigley, atailor, twenty- three years of age, residing in Blo^som-streeu, Great Ancoats, who was seized on the 17th, and died the n „ jit:- —-aifeended upon him, was also attacked, and died on the 18th. On Saturday David Wood, fifty-one years of age, who lived in Chorlton-on-Medlock, died of choleraic diarrhoea, after an illness of ten and a half hours. Notwithstanding the sanitary precautions taken by the Stookport corporation and board of guardians, a case of English cholera has occurred in the very heart of the borough. Mr. Shuttleworth, coach and cab proprietor, Heaton-lane, died late on Wednesday night, after three days' illness. He was attended by three medical gentlemen, one of whom was attacked by the disease. Another fatal case of cholera has occurred in the South Shields Workhouse. The sufferer's name was Sarah Maokey, aged six years.
